In this study, a comprehensive procedure for design, building and commissioning of scale steel structure building models has been developed and presented for practical applications in shaking table test programmes. To validate the model, shaking table tests and numerical time history dynamic analyses were performed under the influence of different scaled earthquake acceleration records. Comparing the numerical predictions and experimental values of maximum lateral displacements, it became apparent that the numerical predictions and laboratory measurements are in a good agreement. As a result, the scale structural model can replicate the behaviour of real steel structure buildings with acceptable accuracy. It is concluded that the physical model is a valid and qualified model which can be employed for experimental shaking table tests.
